Times Have Changed

As a current Resident in Counseling I am in favor of lowering the amount of required hours for licensure. The number 3,400 seems arbitrary and is not indicative of someone's ability to work with clients effectively. Not to mention there is a shortage of therapists nationally and more than 50% of potential clinicians who start residency are not able to complete it.
